Tranmere   0 - 1   Hartlepool

Highlights - Tranmere 0-1 Hartlepool

Tranmere 0-1 Hartlepool

Tranmere keeper Peter Gulacsi's late howler gifted Hartlepool all three points to settle a poor quality game.

Gulacsi punched Leon McSweeney's corner straight into his own net, but Hartlepool were value for their win.

Ritchie Humphreys fired wide in a first-half one-on-one before Gary Liddle volleyed straight at Gulacsi.

And Gulcacsi had to gather from Antony Sweeney and James Brown as Tranmere struggled to break down the determined and committed visitors.


Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:
"I don't think we had control of the game. To say we were poor is taking away from Hartlepool because I think they did OK in the first half.

"At half-time I would have taken a 0-0 because they were the better side in the first half.

"The goal was unfortunate, as Peter Gulacsi has gone to punch it and it's come off the side of his fist and gone straight in."

Hartlepool United caretaker manager Mick Wadsworth told BBC Tees:
"We had some great chances, we've worked the ball well in and around the box and Gary Liddle had a great chance that hit the woodwork.

"I do feel sorry for their goalkeeper because he'd had a wonderful game. He made one marvellous save and when the ball came into the box he was in good positions.

"They've had to change their team a lot. Les [Parry, Tranmere manager] had to patch his team up, but we controlled the game."
